    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Pip back pay can take few weeks there are no fixed timescales 

    However you might find you get it before you get your award letter as they are released at same time and clears quicker in your bank than the post

    I got my backpay before I got the letter confirming I had been awarded PIP. It was a day of utter joy! This huge chunk of money in my account. Sadly that 18 months ago and it was quickly gone paying all my debts.
